## The Surface Area of a Cylinder

Students find the circumference and diameter of several circles and calculate the surface area of cylinders. In this surface area of a cylinder lesson plan, students use rectangles and lids to make several cylinders. They calculate the surface areas of the cylinders using the area of each rectangle plus two times the corresponding lid. Students develop the formula for the surface area of a cylinder.
